Step inside this striking converted church in the capital – once owned by The Queen

Step inside one of the most striking church conversions on the market in London...

Not everyone would be keen on spending the night in a church, let alone calling one ‘home’.

But this converted family home is looking for a new owner, and has some pretty impressive features to lure in the potential buyers.

That’s right, this four-bedroom London home has been transformed from a cold and eerie church into a cosy home with a plush contemporary interior. Built in 1861, this Grade II listed building underwent total renovation in 1998, and the attention to detail is breathtaking.

The property’s listing on Rightmove describes it as ‘one of London’s most unique and striking properties located on a quiet residential road and less than 25 minutes drive from Marble Arch and the West End – with one of its previous owners being Her Majesty The Queen.’

And it certainly is unusual. The juxtaposition between the ancient exterior and the modern interior is not only striking but also incredibly rare. What could have been a house with disjointed and mismatched styles is in fact a mastery of seamless design.

Throughout the property, contemporary features both complement and enhance the ancient fabric of the building. Wooden radiator covers echo the arc-shape of the stone windows and doorframes, while areas of exposed stone and brick walls standout against painted walls in contemporary colours.

One of the most impressive rooms is the reception room. Originally the belfry, it flaunts ceilings of approximately 40ft in height and vast windows that flood it with light.

Other unique selling points include 3ft-thick stone walls and an original working church clock.

Oh, and there’s also extraordinary panoramic views of the surrounding area from the roof terrace, which is approximately 300ft above sea level.
